More Photos from IMATS 2009 (Day 2)…
Continuing the coverage of Meilily’s visit to Los Angeles for IMATS, the International Makeup Artists Trade Show:  Here are more photos from IMATS Day 2, with a focus on film makeup and some disturbing but fascinating oddities from the show!

*Don’t forget to check out Meilily’s Part 1: IMATS Highlights & Photos, with MAC Pro body art!

Note: I placed these photos in order of oddness, starting with a normal makeup photo…

Found lovely little synthetic kabuki brushes for only $6 from Royal & Langnickel’s booth- They totally remind me of my beloved Stript Taklon Kabuki Brush!

OK, we’re done with the pretty and cute pictures from IMATS, now on to… scary film makeup!

This one is for the boys: from the Terminator Salvation movie (by Legacy Effects and Stan Winston Studio)…

The Terminator Salvation T-600 Endoskeleton was impressive and quite tall in person. I think it’s smiling in this photo : )

Even scarier

There was a booth with an artist sculpting a monster’s head out of a clay-like substance and talking about making skin folds look realistic, and this monster was on display as a small sculpture

It’s quite a nice sculpture, really, and maybe only four inches tall from its waist, but pretty scary in photographs.

And finally one of the oddest (*warning: slightly disturbing) items found at IMATS 2009

This knee-high dog form had a man’s face on it, the “Dog Man” makeup done by Tom Burman from the movie Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), according to the label.

Next to it was “Extraterrestrial costume, head, and hands” from Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), also by Tom Burman (you can see the scary hand).
